Na Maloom Afraad 2 Review: The sequel of Nabeel Qureshi’s Na Maloom Afraad is running successfully in cinemas and according to the filmmakers, their movie has collected 10 Crore in just five days on box office in Pakistan. Read our guest review below;
The best part of Na Maloom Afraad 2 was brilliant acting by the lead cast Fahad Mustafa, Javed Sheikh, and Mohsin Abbas Haider and senior actors Nayyar Ijaz and Saleem Mairaj, who played negative roles. None of the female actors seemed impressive enough with Hania Amir being pretty mediocre and over-doing. Urwa Hocane and Marina Khan’s roles were easily forgotten once the movie ended.
Fahad Mustafa has once again proved that he is the best thing happened to Pakistani cinema since the revival. During last couple of years, he has done better than most of his competitors including Shaan Shahid, Humayun Saeed and even Fawad Khan. His screen appearance, his acting skills, facial expressions, body language and dialogue deliveries can easily be compared with any top rated actor in Bollywood. We can now proudly say that we have a hero material who has proved himself without crossing any borders. His performance has raised the bar to a level where it won’t be easy a ride for others.
Another actor who stood out with acting skills was Saleem Mairaj. The way he portrayed himself as a typical Karachi gangster in a foreign country, especially South Africa was truly commendable.
Veterans Jawaid Sheikh and Nayyar Ijaz were good as usual and occasionally Nayyar Ijaz stole the limelight from leading stars.
But, Na Maloom Afraad 2 being the sequel of 2014’s comedy thriller Na Maloom Afraad had very high expectations, which, unfortunately, weren’t fulfilled much. From a tragic prologue to a very predictable epilogue, this film is co-written and directed by young, energetic and very talented Nabeel Qureshi and had it’s highs and lows.
Story-line was predictable and that coupled with over-flow of sponsors was a turn off. Cinematography was eye catching and selection of locations were good too, but, as most of the movie was shot in in Cape Town, South Africa, I was expecting even more better quality.
It left a sour taste with its very weak and predictable story, some cheap content (like; avoid getting raped), below par music – with the exception of Mohsin Abbas’s Heerey – and overflow of sponsors. There can be better ways to please your sponsors, but things went wrong here.
Na Maloom Afraad 2 is a must watch movie for Fahad Mustafa fans but else doesn’t have much to it.
